Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Trading is Simple yet complicated

Hello all,

I want to introduce myself as Max. I have been trading for the past 2 years. I started with a small account and have experienced many ups and downs over the past 2 years in my trading experience. My thinking is that trading should be minimized to as few things as possible and be based on price action plus volume (when needed). When I started trading, I used to search for indicators that would work to make me rich. However, I quickly found out that reading price action was what other successful traders that I follow on twitter were doing. After 2 years of trading, I am down just a bit (almost flat with no profit no loss) at this time.

In this thread, I want to share my experiences, get advice from others, contribute to this great community and get better at trading.
